It’s almost here, the moment sports fanatics have been waiting for: Super Bowl Sunday. We know this year’s Super Bowl may look and feel different, but we urge you to celebrate it anyway. Fire up that crockpot or air fryer and get out your cocktail shaker. This year, we’re kicking it up a notch and trading our cold beer in for even cooler cocktails. Whether you’re rooting for the Kansas City Chiefs, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or you’re just in it to see The Weeknd in the halftime show, you’ll love these 13 cocktails worthy of sippin’ during the big game this Sunday.

Kicking this list off with a more well-known beverage — we’ve got the Dark N Stormy. It’s a super-balanced blend of tasty rum, fresh lime and spicy ginger beer. And with just three ingredients, this pirate-inspired drink is a great one to pour all day long. View Recipe

When you think of Kansas City, your mind doesn’t first wander to mixed drinks – Kansas is much more well known for its craft beer. But why can’t you have both? The Black-Beer-Y Smash has a fun name and even more fun flavor: It’s fresh blackberries, mint, tart lemon juice and simple syrup muddled, then mixed with whiskey and wheat beer. View Recipe

Pretend you’re in Tampa Bay cheering on your team with this tropical, refreshing blend of pineapple, lime, vodka and cranberry. View Recipe

If you’re searching for a shorter drink to root on the Buccaneers with, might we suggest the Red Peach Pirate? The orange juice, grenadine and fruity garnishes keep it fresh, while the rum and Schnapps give it the boozy boost you’ll want on gameday. View Recipe

Red is going head-to-head in Super Bowl 2021 with the Chiefs and the Buccaneers both boasting crimson colors, so here’s a refreshing drink that appeals to both sides. If you fancy a nice red wine, this one’s for you. View Recipe

Halfway through the list, it’s time to make some drinks perfect for the halftime show. Take this super simple rum-and-tequila shot while you’re jamming out to “Blinding Lights”, & it might just improve your dance moves! (probably not, but it’s worth a shot.) View Recipe

The Weeknd collaborated with Grey Goose to create a custom cocktail for his Starboy world tour, and the Moscow Mule Jello Shot is our Tipsy twist on it. Get the party started with this fun shooter, but try not to go overboard. After a few, you might just start seeing stars. View Recipe

Once you have a couple of these beautiful blue cocktails, you might not be able to feel your face — in a good way. Blue raspberry vodka gives this its electric blue hue, while lemon lime soda makes it the perfect fizzy drink for sipping on the couch during the halftime show. View Recipe

Not only does this bourbon-forward drink go well with Southern-style BBQ and cheering on the KC Chiefs, it also reminds us of the city’s biggest brewery, Boulevard. You won’t miss your beer when you’re sipping this deliciousness from a rocks glass. View Recipe

This drop shot drink reminds us of a cherry cola from our youth… except better because it’s boozy and interactive. Get into the buccaneer spirit with cherry vodka, grenadine and a healthy serving of rum. View Recipe

This Sunday, the Chiefs are wearing their red jerseys accented by gold, so why not celebrate them with the Golden Dagger? Jägermeister and Goldschläger are the shining stars of this herbaceous, spicy mixed drink. View Recipe

Word on the street is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are wearing their white jerseys for the Super Bowl, so make a beverage that matches with the classic White Russian. It’s creamy, it’s sweet, it’s full of alcohol – just what you need for this year’s game. View Recipe

Both teams are dreaming of winning another Super Bowl, so follow your hopes with the Golden Dream, a sweet and tart cocktail that looks great and tastes even better. No matter who takes home the title this year, we can all raise a glass to the love of the game. View Recipe
